Leather Beaded Pouches

At the Chamberlain Ranch Shoot I finished several leather beaded pouches.
The pouch at the far end is for holding an extra bow string.

My newly designed roadrunner pouch. I can't wait to make another one in a different color scheme.
I sold two pairs of earrings, including the ankh earrings I just made for myself. So I need to get busy and make another pair of those as well. And my daughter dropped by so I gave her the earrings I made for her, so I need to get busy and make more inventory for an SCA event on Sunday. I'd like to fill this entire pegboard.

Beaded Star Pin

My most recent star pin. These little beauties will look fantastic under stage lights. When I get another sewing machine I'll be sewing them onto headbands for belly dancing. Sewing beads onto anything is very time consuming. It's not made in China and I don't want to sell it for $5.00

Oak and Rattan

My daughter showed up to surprise me at the Chamberlain Ranch meet. So I gave her the long dangly earrings I made for her, and then I made another pair in turquoise blue and royal blue to hang up on the pegboard to sell at my booth.

And I started another felt pin with beads.

I also made a tiny shelf of rattan and oak branches. It was perfect for setting my beaded pins on. When we unpack the truck I'll show you.

More Beading

Yesterday I started weaving a pair of earrings in blue, yellow and green. I started on the 2nd one today at the laundromat but didn't get to finish it. I made a portable kit that holds enough supplies to make one pair of earrings. Neat.

Coyote Earrings

I've been working on lots of things for the Chamberlain Ranch Shoot. I just started knitting a spring green hat with pink diamonds yesterday. This is a coyote design I want to add to a pouch. I've been making beaded earrings too. I designed a road runner that is wide, so it will have to go on a pouch or a necklace. It's neverending.
